Police say people should be wary of posting pictures of pets online that could reveal their locationDog owners should be wary of posting pictures of their pet on social media and leaving them unattended outside shops, police have warned, amid a rising number of dog thefts in the UK.Last year, there was a boom in what were labelled “pandemic puppies” as people stuck at home during lockdown acquired pets to lift their spirits. But DogLost, a UK charity that helps victims of dog theft, recorded a 170% increase in the crime, from 172 dogs in 2019 to 465 dogs in 2020. And it is not just the UK – Lady Gaga had two French bulldogs stolen on Wednesday night and her dog walker was shot during the robbery in Los Angeles. Continue reading...

Lost in the multiverse: will Spider-Man ever find his way home?
The bizarre events in WandaVision are fuelling speculation that Tom Holland’s Spidey will be a long way from New York in his next big-screen outingThe titles of Spider-Man movies have not traditionally told us a whole lot about their storylines. It wasn’t until Marvel took over the franchise with Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) that we even got so much as a hint of what was about to take place in each forthcoming instalment. And yet this week’s announcement that Tom Holland’s third solo outing as the teenage superhero will be called Spider-Man: No Way Home has got the geekosphere buzzing.Perhaps it’s because there are so many clues out there already that the next film in the series will go way off the beaten track. On the big screen, Spider-Man has always existed largely in his own New York back yard, bar the odd jaunt into outer space in the Avengers movies and his holiday to Europe in Spider-Man: Far from Home (2019). But, taken together with reports that the new film will delve deeply into the Marvel multiverse, along with the bizarre goings-on in the Disney+ TV series WandaVision, there’s a sense that it might be a while before we see Peter Parker hanging with Aunt May in Queens any time soon.

CO2 emissions: nations' pledges 'far away' from Paris target, says UN
Secretary general António Guterres says first assessment of promises amounts to ‘red alert for our planet’The first assessment of countries’ pledges to cut their greenhouse gas emissions in the next decade, a vital component of the Paris climate agreement, has found they are only a fraction of the effort needed to avoid climate breakdown.If all of the national pledges submitted so far were fulfilled, global emissions would be reduced by only 1% by 2030, compared with 2010 levels. Scientists have said a 45% reduction is needed in the next ten years to keep global heating to no more than 1.5C above pre-industrial levels, in line with the Paris agreement. Continue reading...
